Magnificent Mural

Most public wall art around India is of the paper political kind -- temporary messages plastered up and then stripped away. Like this example for the opposition party:

Once in a while, you find something more permanent and definitely more beautiful. Here's a mural that rises way above the humble task of advertising for a hair salon. It's actually an homage to a long passed chief minister for the state we're in, Tamil Nadu. MGR, who died in 1987, was much beloved, a movie star-turned politician. Evidently his good looks did not go unnoticed and his hair style makes a great selling point.
